The common horseradish, a popular rubefacient, which has sometimes accidentally proved of great use, of course only when the symptoms corresponded. Proved by Dr. Franz, who introduced Asafoetida and Valeriana into our Materia Medica; printed in Stapf's Archives, Vol. 17, No. 3, p. 176; later in the Gallican Journal, No. 3, p. 7. In this country applied and somewhat proved by Dr. Cate, Amer. Jour. Hom., Vol. I., p. 336, 1851. In 1868 we got another more complete proving from one of our students, J. C. D., too modest to write his name on his treatise.
